A renewable grant could fund the Kosciusko County Jail’s drug rehab program for a year.
Sheriff Kyle Dukes got permission from the County Council last night to apply for the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute’s Residential Substance Abuse Treatment program to fund the Jail Chemical Addictions Program.
The Times-Union reports the over $163K grant would pay for contract programs and operating expenses for 12 months beginning in July.
Included in the request are funds for the first full-time director in the program, still in its first year of operation in the jail.
The program just graduated its first class of seven inmates less than two weeks ago.
